7:00 am
department and we have not heard from them we have requested they provide changes they have made and in the last few weeks we've yet to hear from them to make the amendment on the day of the vote would be inconsistent the fact that no one disputes this is a problem to the extent that san francisco remains the most unequal city in the country that inequality will not be addressed until women are paid fairly and until we make a step and do something this is an opportunity to do piling that to finally take alex action and the last thing i'll say we were very cautious in drafting this piece of legislation we actually create a period of time for all
7:01 am
of the parties involved to work best method to implement this law we're talking about this law not being implemented until january 1st, 2016, that's a long period of time for us to figure out the best method to collect data at the end of the day the basic thrust of this legislation is simply collect data to require the reports be for the city that's not too much to ask i respectfully ask for your support. >> thank you supervisor tang. >> thank you first of all, i want to thank supervisor campos for making the implementation dates until january 2016 and, of course, for continuing the item for the three weeks to look at the legislation so i thank you for that i do have a conversation with the supervisors office today and
7:02 am
i know you're not a psychic but i brought up things that you've disregard with so today, i was prepared to speak to how the search-and-seizure board i want them to address the threshold amount which dcwf has brought to me and others i understand that you couldn't have foreseen i would propose this amendment but during this review process they'll seriously consider the nonprofit do grantees i've mentioned at our last meeting prior to the continuance to make sure that the sires body to spell out how their collecting data that some of our nonprofits or contractors are submitting already to our various city department and repurpose them in
7:03 am
a way not to be bumping how it is you're going to analyze the data and how it is we're going to be catering this legislation it is one i support i support data gathering and intend to support this legislation i think the basic amendment i'm planning on macon page 13 on line 3 just asking that the advisor board have a consideration within 6 months we add in the advisory board within 6 months to simultaneously finds out the implementation process that is not the legislation noted preclude that from happening i want to make sure this is being implemented by the board of supervisors they they have a chance to provide feedback that
7:04 am
maybe possible and again, i the say i don't appreciate my miss characterization it is an important issue i support and simply want to make it better and smooth process when it's implemented so with that, i make a motion. >> i neglected when supervisor campos asked for a second is there a second supervisor kim colleagues any discussion on supervisor campos amendment we'll take that without objection. that is adapt and supervisor tang a second second by supervisor kim any discussion with regards to them we'll take that without objection. that is adapted supervisor kim. >> thank you just want to again thank supervisor campos office but all the advocates and members of our community that are here to support this really important legislation i'm glad we're here and ready to vote
7:05 am
when is the beginning of the process to start our equal pay ordinance here in san francisco i've mentioned that why i supported in a couple weeks ago this doesn't set the infrastructure by which we will work with an advisor committee to how to pass legislation that insures we are submitting and insuring equal pay for equal work for women that work and are paid for by are typewriter dollars here in san francisco i wanted to mention my support so far supervisor campos and supervisor tang's amendment and i certainly think they provide a little bit more clarity in terms of our exceptions for the process in addition to giving more time more thoughtfulness how to get the issues for equal pay for equal work without
7:06 am
overwhelming our contractors and organizations but i appreciate supervisor campos story about one nonprofit here in san francisco i anything else that most of our nonprofits want to be able to amelia rate those issue but not aware of it and will make the changes self-they knew they weren't paying their female workers the same as other workers i'm excited to pass this legislation i'm committed in working with the offices to make sure we have a structure and process and all the input it put into place i wanted to also remind the members of the floor on page 13 on line two to four it is spelled out the advisor board recommendation shall include recommendations for additional owners if protective change is necessary to implement
7:07 am
the recommendation ♪ the coming year we'll have time for the increase in thresholds that's recommend inform the process particle for the nonprofits that get $2,000 i know that supervisor tang harassed brought up i'm committed to working on to support those changes if need be the final goal we need to get this process starts it's something out of want has called for in d.c. and i'm excited that san francisco is going to follow and recognition supervisor campos and his office and hillary for moving forward with that complex ordinance to get this process forward so we can see a city that says anyone that is getting paid by our taxpayer dollars are condominium to equal
7:08 am
pay for equal work >> supervisor avalos. >> i wanted to echo the legislation and supporters this is groundbreaking we're providing an ordinance we're gathering information for an ordinance that will insure that women receive equal pay for equal work it's groundbreaking and now on the other places in san francisco it is significant i want to thank supervisor campos so far bringing this forward talking with someone they suggested is there a way to actually loop in people who receive a tax break from the city perhaps like our tweeter tax break or you know, i thought it was a useful idea one worth checking out but i think that it legislation should move forward i think we should probably engage in a further discussion
7:09 am
to expand to add in companies that receive a tax break from the city i want to suggest along with supervisor campos that ascent is to duplicate the file send back to committee with our name on it as the author so we can vote when we explorer the idea of looking at people that receive a tacks break from the city i think that creating that relationship they have voluntarily apply for the tax break we can ask them how they're doing in making sure that women are being paid equally for the same work that men do i ask a motion to duplicate the file and, of course, the one that remains here move forward. >> is there a second second by supervisor campos colleagues, any discussion on that to
7:10 am
duplicate? okay. well ma'am, >> okay. on the motion to duplicate and send back to committee discussions supervisor campos. >> thank you let me say this is i think it's really important we take a vote on the ordinance as proposed today and as i understand the motion by supervisor avalos we'll be able to do that and the reason why i seconded the motion i think that as the current version of the legislation moves forward it is appropriate for us in committee to discuss whether or not we should add to the requirement that exists in the law that currently is drafts to require those entities that want to get a tax break from the city to actually provide the information i think that's
7:11 am
something that makes a grateful of sense and at a minimum deserves more consideration and the motion will allow that to happen the fact is the same principle applies anyone that is getting a break and enter from the city whether it's by way of a contract or tax break should understand that with that benefit comes the idea that you report on whether or not your painstakingly men and women equally it's in that spirit i support that effort. >> supervisor yee. >> thank you president chiu just wanted to also weigh in and thank supervisor campos for to get this discussion going as we can subtle we're going to continue having this discussion the fact that it is illegal to give different pay for gender
7:12 am
and we don't have enough information to see whether or not it's true is important we collect the data i was as a father of two daughters and my wife still works and i would if i'm looking at the situation peron where personal or for the people in san francisco it's important for us to get behind what is wrong and make sure that everybody gets equal pay whether it's could be a pattern where even a reverse on that but i doubt as dominant as women getting paid less than men i was ready to vote on it a few weeks and ready now. >> supervisor mar. >> thank you supervisor campos for bringing this forward i know there are generations and decades of activists that are in the audience and also following this i think the culture of
7:13 am
secrecy around description is something from the merna work at jamestown to bigger entities like sf general this is to address it in an continental way with the recent package of the workers bill of rights that impacts immigrants and people of color it is a step towards equal pay i know there's a long way to go i want to thank supervisor campos and hillary for making us aware of the new mexico. executive order and the coalition of women's organizations that brought this forward for years and thank our
7:14 am
strong wemgz leaders for keeping the pressure on this board and city hall to make sure we have wage equality and address sexism thank you. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you, mr. president i want to make one final .1 of the things that was moving for me in the process of working on this piece of legislation was seeing especially how some of the older women share their stories we heard in that chamber scombrain morrison who now in her nos talked about how the company that she worked for as a woman it was very clear she was never going to be promoted in her experience training a lot of men that came in that company
7:15 am
and went on to become you know her bosses even though she was clearly nor qualified i want to take a personal note the opportunity to thank all the women who have shared the stories with us and the one thing i'll say to the jane morrison's of the world of san francisco i'm sorry it took so long to get to this point but we have knives and daughters and sisters the hope that the young girls and women that live in san francisco will not have to go through that because of those types of efforts thank you. >> with that, we have a duplicated file as suggested by supervisor avalos there's a motion to supervisor avalos is it to refer to committee or your
7:16 am
duplicated portion back to committee. >> to duplicate and refer back to committee and keep the original one here to vote on today. >> the duplicate company is not here the motion to refer this was second by supervisor campos colleagues we'll take that without objection. that's the case and on the ordinance as amended roll call vote. >> supervisor mar. >> supervisor tang supervisor wiener supervisor yee supervisor avalos supervisor breed supervisor campos supervisor chiu supervisor farrell supervisor kim there are 10 i's.
